Modem is disconnecting every day for 8-10 hours

Hello,

 

I am so frustrated. My modem disconnected everyday for about 8 hours daily for the past week. Used chat support and they recommended I do all of the reset/restart processes and I did, nothing has changed. 

I am unable to get into the modems  "website" to talk to it as I am disconnecting from service when I try. I truly cannot afford $125 for a service call right now, is there any way I can get a new modem? I'm so tired of this.

The reps may be able to help, but they won't be back on until Monday.  When they reply they may ask for personal information in order to locate your account, but they'll ask for it to be sent via private message, for which they'll provide a link.  

 

Hang in there.

Good morning PHadsock45, 

 

I see it's your first post here, so welcome to the community! I've gone ahead and expedited a replacement modem at no extra cost to you. Please use the box to send back your old modem to avoid the Unreturned Equipment Fee; the return label is in the outer pouch. 

 

Let me know how the new modem works out for you.

 

Thanks,

Liz

Thank You Liz! I will let you know! 🙂

Hi Liz,

 

I received the new modem and got it installed, and sent the old back. My internet is still kicking out everyday and returning late at night. I'm so frustrated. I've gone days now without service. I don't know what could be wrong.

Hi PHadsock45,

 

After running and reviewing your site diagnostics, we have decided as a courtesy to dispatch a technician to do a complete review of your site due to the concerns you've been encountering.

 

Your dispatch is currently scheduled for our earliest available slot: Wednesday, Dec 1, 2021 between 8:00 AM-11:00 AM. The tech will reach out to confirm the visit, so you can use that opportunity to reschedule if needed.

 

Please let us know how the site visit goes.

 

Thanks,

Liz

Good morning PHadsock45,

 

I see the technician came and replaced the radio during the site visit. Haven't heard from you in a while so I hope all is well; I'll go ahead and close this thread. If you have any other concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us again.

 

Thanks,

Liz
